Being right at the point where the traffic left Comcast and entered GTT, technically the literal "fault" could actually be either one of them. (Comcast's edge hardware might be slow is getting the packets out or back in; or maybe it's GTT's end being slow to accept them.)

But to me that still means its in Comcast's court and worth time trying to call them, since they're your ISP and control their side of this "edge" connection to GTT. Even if Comcast thought it was GTT's problem, Comcast is the one who is connected to them (not you), and Comcast technically might have the ability to use a different peer if they confirm GTT is having issues.

Since you're gone for a week, the first first thing will of course be to see if the issue even still exists.
